Not the mountains, just a little mountain in the sea, our little Mt. Olympus. I hope you enjoy the view.
Nice view. I lived for a while along the Eastern Shore. Always loved the views, but never cared to spend time on the beach.

There is a place in Connecticut where I could walk in through a sassafras forest into a meadow and sleep under the stars, looking up into the sky and seeing them clearly. Just over a little rise the waves would be breaking on a beach and I could smell the salt air. I would often wake up in the morning with a whitetail or two grazing nearby. It was the last bit of undeveloped oceanfront in New England, other then some places along the Maine coast.
